It's great having a stash of furniture out in the shed, mostly of pieces that you randomly find on the side of the road. Even if it's busted up and your hubby is totally annoyed at the piece of poo you hauled home... it's nice being able to "shop" in your stash on days when your little boy says "Mom, I need a little desk". And you can reply, "Okay son, let me go see what I've got out in the shed...."
I simply got rid of the bottom shelf, and then cut the back "leg" off flush with the middle shelf. So it kind of looks like a three-legged dog... but like a determined three-legged dog - it manages just fine. Fine enough for my kiddo, anyway. He loves three-legged dogs just as well as four-legged ones. Wait.... he doesn't really like anything that will knock him over and leave muddy footprints all over his face..... Okay so substitute "cat" where you read "dog".
While the kiddos were spending their last day of spring break at Grandma's house yesterday, I painted the little guy. It was a quick and easy job, and I used stencils for the little details. The '06 is for the year Tobin was born. He just glows when he sees little personal touches like that. :)
I'm almost done with his dresser (we also got free), so hopefully I can post on that soon! It's going to require me to cut up an old belt to finish it... and I'm not sure I have a belt I want to part with!
Until next time! And thanks for visiting Kammy's Korner!
